"Waiting On" Wednesday #5: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that give us those book tingles!

Today's WoW pick is an exciting and wild time travel piece by one of the loveliest authors ever! Unfortunately, like with Truthwitch, we have a long wait ahead of us...

This Wednesday, I'm waiting on Passenger by Alexandra Bracken! It shares a book birthday with Truthwitch and will be out on January 5, 2016.

I have an ARC that I'm itching to start reading. The book sounds like a captivating blend of genres: historical, romance, fantasy, science fiction, you name it! I'm so excited to see what Bracken has in store for us.

Here's the Goodreads synopsis for those who haven't heard of Passenger:

Violin prodigy Etta Spencer had big plans for her future, but a tragedy has put her once-bright career at risk. Closely tied to her musical skill, however, is a mysterious power she doesn't even know she has. When her two talents collide during a stressful performance, Etta is drawn back hundreds of years through time.

Etta wakes, confused and terrified, in 1776, in the midst a fierce sea battle. Nicholas Carter, the handsome young prize master of a privateering ship, has been hired to retrieve Etta and deliver her unharmed to the Ironwoods, a powerful family in the Colonies--the very same one that orchestrated her jump back, and one Nicholas himself has ties to. But discovering she can time travel is nothing compared to the shock of discovering the true reason the Ironwoods have ensnared her in their web.

Another traveler has stolen an object of untold value from them, and, if Etta can find it, they will return her to her own time. Out of options, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the mysterious traveler. But as they draw closer to each other and the end of their search, the true nature of the object, and the dangerous game the Ironwoods are playing, comes to light -- threatening to separate her not only from Nicholas, but her path home... forever.

Just look at that cover... with a cover that beautiful, I can't imagine how amazing the actual book is going to be! I'm so excited for this novel, and I hope I've sucked a few of you into the rapidly developing Passenger fandom.
